After practicing in Murfreesboro for 18 years, Dr. Christine Hoffman opened the first Direct Primary Care (DPC) office in Murfreesboro on March 25, 2017. The transition from her established practice to the Direct Primary Care model allows Dr. Hoffman to continue to provide the highest quality care, for which she has been rated by insurers in the past, while continuing to focus on her patients’ needs with unmatched affordability and convenience.
